I have done work on cognitive distortions . Today I met and spoke briefly with a homeless transgender person. She cannot get or even apply for federal assistance for housing until she has been homeless for 7 more months. Unable to stay at shelters due to being targeted. The system is rigged for failure. I no longer believe homeless is a choice or for that matter any person who says '" that was your choice" Was it my choice to be seizure free over 8 years after my craniotomy? Well I did hard work and compliance with health care providers. Much research too. My current neurologist thinks my brain may have healed from this. This occuring is in the medical literature. I am disturbed this evening by many things including blame willful ignorance etc. My paternal grandfather died from epilepsy and other comorbities. So.msny people told me what happened to me was " my fault" How will any of us heal from trauma with all this pychopathology going on?
